Shows I’m Gonna Watch With Mom This Long Weekend!

Mom has a DVR that she uses to record television shows for us to watch together. She watches the show and I get to cuddle/spend quality time with her. Sometimes I get a piece of cheese ... Yum.

This is the line up that we’ve got planned:

1. “Medium”: We have one episode to watch.
2. “CSI: Miami: There are three episodes of this show waiting for us.
3. “CSI: New York”: There’s just one of these waiting in the queue.
4. “NCIS”: We’ve got two of these to watch. Mom likes Mark Harmon.
5. “Veronica Mars”: We became hooked on this show first because it’s taped locally, but more so because it’s really good.
6. “Gilmore Girls”: I think that we’ve gotten way behind on this show ... We’ve got three episodes to watch to get up-to-date.
7. “Cold Case”: Like #6, we’ve gotten pretty far behind.
8. “Shark”: Mom says that she’d watch James Woods read the phonebook for an hour. The man must be starving because he sure does chew the heck out of the scenery.
9. “Supernatural”: Just one episode of this show because Mom tends to watch ‘em as soon as they’ve been taped.
10. “Crossing Jordan”: We’ve got one show to watch from this series, but Mom’s a bit ticked at the writers for killing off Leslie Bibb’s character. There’s too much death in the world.
11. “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”: Another beautifully cast ensemble. Mom and I enjoy listening to Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford deliver their lines. Poetry ...
12. “Numbers”: Three weeks worth of this show to watch. It’s nice to see Kathy Najimy in a program that showcases her expressiveness. She’s the reason behind Sparky Fuzzypant’s name, by the way.
13. “The Knights of Prosperity”: Two words -- Donal Logue. Mom, for some reason BEYOND my reconning, thinks that he’s brilliant in this show. Go figure ...

Posting UPDATE!
'Cuz you wanted to know:
In October of 1999, there was an episode of an NBC show called "Veronica's Closet" with Kirstie Alley featuring a character played by Kathy Najimy (Olive Massery) who's having a birthday. Veronica ends up getting her a sweet little kitten with long, fluffy fur. At the end of the episode, Olive scoops him up and nuzzles him addressing him as "Mr. Fuzzypants."

When Mom and Grandma found Sparky Fuzzypants, Grandma wanted to name him Sparky because he was found on July 3rd. As he grew, he developed furry pantaloons. When Mom saw the episode of "Veronica's Closet," Sparky got his middle name. So essentially, Kathy Najimy named him. Get it?

Mom thinks there might not be enough hours in the weekend for your mom to watch all these shows and make sure all members of the Feline Americans get fed and petted. She agrees with her about 4, 7, 8, 11 and 12, but she can't understand why the original CSI is missing. She thinks that's the best of the bunch. Unless of course, you never miss it when it's on the first time.

Yeah, my humans get behind on the TiVo too. They always have a long list of CSI's to watch. Have fun watching and eating cheese!!


Gemini said...

Oh we usually just watch what's on. sometimes the Almost Dad tapes some things. We like NCIS too...

Daisy said...

I think any TV watching that involves pieces of cheese is good! We are watching American Idol now.

We love Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls. Tuesdays are good TV days for us.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Mom didn't list the original CSI 'cuz she watches in in something called "real time" ... I guess that means 9 o'clock on Thursdays.

We'll have to post about the origin of Sparky Fuzzypants' name so that efurrybody can understand.

My human has liked Kathy Najimy since she worked with Mo Gaffney in Parallel Lives, and that was years ago... but as far as I'm concerned, the only thing TV is good for is that my humans make laps and don't move, which is cool.

Our Lady also watches every one of those shows and more.... Our TV is always on and/or recording! This is a TV watching family - her Dad used to say "who left the TV off???" as it was always on!!!

P.S. The TV is off right now but probably recording something!

You certainly have a lot of shows to watch with your Mom. Lots and lots of cuddle time for you and the Feline Americans. Enjoy your cheese.

We also have a DVR (whatever that is). We like to watch CSI regular, Law and Order, Trading Spaces and some other stuff too. When just Tracy is home, we watch Gilmore Girls, How I Met Your Mother and Rachael Ray. When just Denis is home, we watch some boring home improvement stuff and lots of poker. But it's all cool because we get to be together. :o)

Mom was watching poker during something called "last season" when it was with celebrities ... I wasn't interested because no cats were playing. I have a purrfect poker face and would be a fabulous poker player.
Say "hey" to Monica!
